Walmart Begins Checking Concealed Handgun Licenses In Some Stores


Texas is about a week into Open Carry and while the lists continue to grow over which businesses welcome the practice, Walmart is now weighing in.

While the national retailer welcomes CHL to carry openly in their stores, they say they are asking managers at stores to sell alcohol to check those customers for their licenses.

Walmart says they welcome anyone with a license to carry. And in a statement to FOX 7, they add, “We will continue to allow customers to carry firearms on Walmart property as long as they follow local, state and federal firearm laws.”
